[visionlist] Final deadline for ECEM 2017 submissions on April 18

Dear colleagues, 

We have been
approached by researchers who expressed difficulty meeting the relatively early
submission deadline for the European Conference of Eye Movements in Wuppertal. As a
result, we have decided to move the deadline to April 18 as the final date for
submissions of talks and posters. The time for notification and early
registration will be moved up to May 15.  

We have already received a large
number of submissions. Note that changes to your submission can still be made
in the ConfTool system before the final April 18 deadline.

Compared to the earlier ECEM
conferences in Vienna and Lund we have been able to lower registration fees to
160 € (early) and 200 € (late) for students (including doctoral students) and
to 260 (early) and 300 (late) for regular attendees.

We would also like to mention that
ECEM takes place immediately before the European Conference for Visual
Perception (ECVP) from 27-31 August in Berlin and the Conference of the
European Society for Cognitive Psychology (ESCOP) from September 3-6 in
Potsdam. For overseas travelers it may be interesting to know that the
Berlin/Potsdam area can be reached from Wuppertal, Düsseldorf or Cologne by
train in about 4 hours. So attending two conferences can be easily combined
with touristic activities in either area.

Abstracts of all ECEM contributions
will be published in a special issue of the Journal of Eye Movement Research,
with direct linking and DOI for each abstract. Some symposia and thematic
sessions will also be invited as special issues. Individual conference contributions
may be submitted as articles to the Journal.

Conference Program

This year’s program will include invited
talks by eminent scholars in various fields of eye movement research
(see http://ift.tt/2nEW4Iy). There will be a wide range of symposia
covering diverse and innovative areas of eye movement research such as pharmacological
effects on eye movement control, developmental eye tracking, immersive
technologies/virtual reality, visualizations for better learning, rhythmic
processing in music and dance, self-motion perception, analysis of microsaccades,
eye movements in reading and history of eye movement research.

ECEM will also be hosting pre-conference workshops
on the topics listed below.

– Programming and analyzing eye-tracking experiments
in Python

– Eye tracking in virtual
realities

– Analyzing Eye Movement
Experiments using Linear Mixed Models in R

– Infant eye tracking

– Combining Eye-Tracking and
EEG: From Theory to Practice

– A worst practice workshop
for eye tracking researchers

– Combining Eye-Tracking and
EEG: From Theory to Practice

– Workshops on communication
by gaze interaction (COGAIN)

Conference Venue and Social Activities

The city of Wuppertal is
located in west central Germany, very close to Cologne and Düsseldorf.  There is ample opportunity for touristic
traveling, with local sites ranging from beer gardens in the old town, world famous
music and dance theaters, all the way to medieval castles and long hiking
trails in unspoiled nature. The romantic Rhine valley is just a short drive
away. Social activities at ECEM will include a conference dinner at the
historic city hall and a beer party with a local DJ.   

Submissions

Please refer to the

The organizers are looking
forward to welcoming you in Wuppertal. On behalf of all involved in ECEM 2017: Ralph
Radach (Overall Chair), Heiner Deubel (Program), Christian Vorstius &
Markus J. Hofmann (Local Management)
